Practically a holler away from Downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, just 15 minutes, Garner has one of those small family feels that take you in and make you feel right at home.
Great Local Dining
Along with some chain restaurants such as Cracker Barrel, Garner features delicious, local favorites. Soak in the ambience and relish in traditional North Carolina fried chicken and Bar-B-Que at Stephanson’s BBQ, for example.
Garner is full of parks, trees, playgrounds and walking paths. Get out into nature and enjoy your community. Breathe in the atmosphere and clean air of your own stomping grounds. Take your family, group from work or youth group and have a blast at Rush Hour Karting.
White Deer Park is hosting “Full Moon Paddle: Harvest Moon” and “Discovery Days: Scientific Summer” in the Fall. Through the winter months, Garner’s Downtown traditionally becomes a winter wonderland of lights during the “Light Up Main Festival.” Don’t miss out on the Garner Christmas Parade. In the spring, Garner is famous for their annual egg hunt during the “Spring Eggstravaganza” where people come from miles around to laugh, compete and enjoy their families and friends.
Enjoy the Local Arts
There is always something happening at the Garner Performing Arts Center. They take auditions for live performances, show outdoor movies, have hosted winners of “American Idol,” Miss North Carolina, and Country Music Artist, Scotty McCreery, and give back to the community.
Danceart Studio is a great way for your little ones to begin loving the art of dance. Not only will there be dancing for all ages, but they also offer a store for your convenience, a preschool program, and a Woman’s Health & Craft Fair.
